Just a reminder to those who have not yet voted that these cups, the Coath Cup for the Photographer of the Year and the Edmunds Cup for the club member who has preformed services for the club over and above the call of duty, are in the gift of club members and you are asked to be sure to cast your vote as you think fit.
There are only 2 more club evenings and 2 special interest group meetings on which you can cast your vote. Please make sure you don’t miss out.
This is the final call for cups to be returned in preparation for the Annual Exhibition judging which will take place in the near future.
I will be available to accept beautifully cleaned cups on Sunday 12th May at the RPS Documentary Meeting, on Tuesday 14th May at the Print Group or on the 16th May at the club AGM. That should cover everyone!
The AGM will be held on 16th May commencing at 7:30. The papers are available to download from Dropbox using the following link and contain an update of the Agenda paper showing named proposers and seconders in addition to the Management Committee
Please take the time to read them and print them off before the AGM.
Please pay particular attention to Appendices 2b and 3b as these
documents contain proposals to help with the smooth and efficient
running of the Club. Each of these proposals, if approved, will require
a small change in the wording of the Constitution so it is most
important that the meeting is quorate.
This is a reminder that if you would like to join us for the ‘End of Term’ lunch at our favourite hostelry, the Walnut Tree in Runcton on Friday 31st May at 12.30 for 1pm to let me know by Friday 11th May please.
In the first instance, please let me know if you would like to join us , and then I will ask for your order a little nearer the time.
For our newer members, this is a great informal get-together which is open to all the women members over a bite to eat and a glass or two and a good opportunity to get to know each other better. Do come along!
Email me (email@example.com) to let me know by Friday 11th May please.
Print Group sessions draw to a close for this season on Tuesday 14th May with a timely opportunity to take a final look at print entries for this year’s Annual Exhibition (deadline 16th May) and how best to maximise your submissions. Advice also available for those who’d like to produce a hanging plan for their entries!
You’re very welcome – as always – to bring any prints along you’d like to share, discuss or ask for thoughts about, and it’s not necessary to bring work in mounts. It does help though if you simply stick any prints onto some sort of card so that they will stand up on the stands.
Small Hall at Tangmere Village Centre at 7.30pm (help setting up earlier than that also appreciated) with a £3 charge for Members and £4 for visitors.
The Southern Counties PF next week will be selecting both prints and PDIs for the InterFederations Exhibition
Peter Rocchiccioli has asked if members whose prints or PDIs have scored well in Club competitions could bring in their prints tomorrow or send PDIs to him directly (1600×1200 jpeg). Peter’s e mail is firstname.lastname@example.org.
A group of lady photographers featuring Rachael Talibart (who takes wonderful coastal and seascape photographs) are exhibiting at the Arts Centre East Street Chichester. The exhibition is on now and lasts for about 2 weeks I think. Well worth a visit.
I have received 2 requests for photographers in the Club to photograph outside events:
the first is from Richard Rundle one of our members who is involved in promoting a model railway show in Littlehampton later this month. If anyone is interested in taking some photographs please contact Richard on 01243 261641 to get further details.
the second is from Helen Tinner at Worthing Rugby Club this weekend. Further details can be obtained from Helen on 07985001534
The last Club full meeting of the current programme year will be held on Thursday 23rd May. There was some doubt about whether this meeting could go ahead given the potential clash with the European elections, if held. It has now been clarified that if the Centre is required as a polling station, that will take place in the Youth Hall so our RPS Panels evening can definitely go ahead as planned
